MPP Yurek accuses NDP of “fear mongering”
Elgin-Middlesex-London Progressive Conservative MPP Jeff Yurek accused New Democrat candidate Kathy Cornish of “fear mongering” during the Rogers Cable debate in St. Thomas on Thursday, May 15.
Prior to MPP Yurek’s comment, Ms. Cornish said the PC party would lay off 100,000 teachers if it formed government after the June 12 provincial election.
All five candidates running in the election participated in the debate which involved questions posed by local media representatives including a reporter from the Aylmer Express.
The other candidates running in the election include Serge Lavoie of St. Thomas for the Liberals, Clare Maloney of Aylmer for the Freedom Party and John Fisher of Rodney for the Green Party.
